Tomorrow, August 6, 2009, the medical marijuana movement in Los Angeles will say it with flowers if Craig Rubin has his way.

Last night it was announced on Facebook and through IndyBay that the “Beverly Hills Green Cross” medical marijuana collective will be giving out an eighth-ounce of “Beverly Hills Haze” to the first 500 medical marijuana patients to speak to the Los Angeles Planning and Land Use Management Committee at 10:00 AM on Thursday, 6 Aug 09.

Patrick Duff of “Royal Temple of Zion”, and “Discount Relief Collective” announced they would donate an additional 100 eighths of medical marijuana so that the first 200 medical marijuana patients to speak will receive a total of a 1/4 ounce of medicine.

The meeting of the Los Angeles Planning and Land Use Management Committee will consider 20 “hardship exemption” applications for medical marijuana dispensaries.  There are also 19 applications that have been withdrawn for consideration before the committee by the submitters.

These, along with the 20 medical marijuana dispensary hardship exemptions to be considered are listed with the IndyBay article of 4 Aug 09 by Brett Stone.

In order to receive the free medicine, medical marijuana patients will need to fill out a card to address one or more of the hardship exemptions scheduled that day and speak for one minute.  The eighth-ounce of “Beverly Hills Haze”, which is promised to the first 500 medical marijuana patients to speak at the committee meeting, is said to be worth $60.

“We’re taking a page out of 60’s activism” said Craig this afternoon, “we need to clog the room with speakers, make it take an hour or two for each hearing instead of the 8-10 hearings an hour they have been doing.”

The meeting will be at Los Angeles City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Room 350.

There will be no video but the meeting may be heard live via the internet or via phone by dialing (213) 621-CITY, (310) 547-CITY, (310) 471-CITY or (818) 904-9450.  You do not need to be a resident of Los Angeles or live in Los Angeles to listen via phone.

Craig X. Rubin, former candidate for mayor of Los Angeles and one of the applicants to have their hardship exemption reviewed, announced that he will be on KABC radio in Los Angeles to discuss the medical marijuana giveaway on the Doug McIntyre show at 9:00 AM Wednesday morning, August 5th.
